Purchasing items from the Gingerbread house

Since we posted the 2012 Gingerbread House pricing list we have received several emails asking if you can purchase items from the Gingerbread House by phone and have them shipped to you. We have contacted the Grand Floridian and unfortunately you can’t. Items must be purchased in person and if you want to ship them then you will have to set that up at the Business Center. The following Disney resorts have a Business Center available to help you with shipping:

Disney’s Boardwalk Resort
Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
Disney’s Yacht Club Resort

For more information about the Grand Floridian Resort check out our website Where the Magic Lives.

More Miscellaneous WDW Fall Pics


Fall in the Magic


My husband and I took a last minute trip to Walt Disney World at the end of September to celebrate our 24th anniversary.  Some people that heard we were going to WDW sans kids were shocked, but if they really KNEW us, they wouldn’t be.  Walt Disney World is our happy place… our memory making wonderful escape place.  We’ve spent so many wonderful weeks there over the past 20 years it feels like a second home to us.  Walt Disney World, despite never losing the magic and that excitement, holds a comfortable familiarity for us. I still get that “I’m going to Disney World” butterfly feeling in my stomach, yet not the anxiety I develop when traveling elsewhere.  We actually honeymooned here in 1988… except we were broke-ass BROKE and stayed who knows where…I really have no clue where we spent those nights.  My uncle gave us a week at a beautiful condo on the water in Vero Beach for a wedding gift, and we loved that part of our honeymoon but figured, we are in Florida – we have to visit Disney World! Neither of us had been since the ’70s, when we were kids. So we packed up our Honda CRX and headed to Orlando!

Here are some miscellaneous pics from our most recent getaway.  Fall is such a beautiful time to visit the “world” – decoration wise, weather wise and crowd wise…AND fun wise – Food and Wine Fest at Epcot and the Halloween parties in the Magic Kingdom are amazing.  We had a magical time!  Just a few Magic Kingdom pics – we monorailed over from the Grand Floridian…


Happy travels!!

Yo ho Yo ho – A pirates life for me!


chidlrens activities, disney, walt disney world, grand floridian

 Disney offers several pirate adventures from their resorts.  These are available for children ages 4 to 12 years old.  At the Grand Floridian, the cruise departs Mondays through Saturdays  930am from the marina.   This is a two hour adventure.  Parents are given a pager and free time.My daughter was nervous about trying it, but she absolutely loved it.

The cost is $31.95 per child and takes a credit card to guarantee.

Call 407-WDW-PLAY to reserve up to 180 days in advance or contact us.

Children are disguised as rascals and scoundrels in striped pirate mickey bandanas, fitted with life vests, and given safety instructions.  No pirates overboard. There are at least two cast member cpr certified crew captains along for the fun.  The Lady Useppa sails on it’s quest for treasure around the Seven Seas Lagoon.  At each stop the pirates pillage for gold.  The plundering fun also includes a lunch consisting of peanut butter and jelly Uncrustables, Goldfish crackers, Rice Krispee Treat and fruit punch juice box.

We’re beggars and blighters and ne’er do-well cads,
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Aye, but we’re loved by our mommies and dads,
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.

Happy travels!
